George Chamangwana is no more

Butao said the body will be taken from College of Medicine mortuary on Saturday ( 29 July 2017) at 2pm to his residence at Mbengwe just after Angelo Goveya in Limbe.

Butao further said the burial is on Sunday at Misesa Cemetery along Limbe-Thyolo road before Chigumula.

On Friday, Wanderers through its general secretary announced Chamangwana’s death.

“It is with profound sorrow and regret that I announce the death of our beloved Chairman George Chamangwana. George was the face of Wanderers having led and literally carried the team for over a decade. Our loss is beyond words. We condole the Chamangwana family and share their sorrow,” reads the statement.

Meanwhile, other clubs have also condoled Wanderers on the lose of their chairman.

The first club to condole Wanderers is Nyasa Big Bullets through their general secretary Albert Chigoga.

“The entire Nyasa Big Bullets FC family is deeply saddened by the death of the chairman of Mighty Befoward Wanderers FC, George Chamangwana. In the spirit of solidarity and togetherness, we are joining our neighbours in their grief and we are together with them in sorrow to bury one of the icons of Malawi football with the diginity he deserves even after he has passed on.

“Nyasa Big Bullets FC will always remember George as one of the administrators in the unique class of his own, humble and passionate for the game of football. Losing a chairman at this time when Wanderers and Malawi football need him most is a great setback to all of us.

“But God is all-knowing. May his soul rest in glorious peace and may the good Lord comfort his family and the entire Wanderers family,” reads the statement.

From Civil Sporting Club, Owen Malijani says it is a dark day for Malawi football.

“The Executive of Civil Sporting Club has learnt with great sadness of the passing on of Mr Chamangwana. We extend our condolences to his family and the entire Nomads family,” he said.

This is a very sad moment for Nyerere family. George needs to be remembered in football circles as one of the longest football serving football administrators at Lali Lubani. I hope the gap left will be filled with an equally able and professional administrator. However, after George has been laid to rest we don’t want any mishaps and mudslinging in the nomads family, that’s my advice.

May His soul rest in peace, as all of us Malawians mourn our football asset. But unlike all Nyasa stories, I personably find this article mean on the profile of this great player. While I commend the tributes from clubs, it’s time to hear more about his story: when he was born, school life, how he went into football, what family survives him, what trophies he won, how many goals he scored, and et cetra.
